Hi, please make sure that you added the Message Centre Number in the Cellphone. You can get the message centre number by contacting Customer Care of the Network Carrier. Then, add the Message Centre number in the Message Settings of the Cellphone. Now you should be able to receive text messages.

a predefined text message to send to the caller.
